Bondi Resort Blog

Come on into our Blog for a look at the wonderful world we've got to share! With over 240 hectares (600 acres) of wilderness woodlands surrounding the resort, just ten minutes from Algonquin Park, we feature over 400 metres (1200’) of waterfront and beach; boat rentals; summer hiking trails winding through fields and woods; 20 km. of groomed cross country ski trails and snowshoeing in winter; access to nearby snowmobile trails for sledders, and a toboggan hill for the young at heart.

Art on a Northern River

 "Tom Thomson and Northern River"
Group of Seven and Tom Thomson Outdoor Exhibit, Plaque 18

This outdoor plaque is located along the Oxtongue River near Oxtongue Lake, in Ontario. This Oxtongue Lake for Arts and Culture plaque is dedicated to Tom Thomson and the works of art such as "Northern River" that he created depicting the area.

These plaques are being put up along the Oxtongue River and Oxtongue Lake, at the places where the artists were when they created these iconic Canadian images.

Many people don't know that the Group of Seven first dipped their paint brushes into the Canadian wilderness here.

These plaques are wonderful addition to the area -- you can spend a lot of time checking them out, and soaking in the views!
